Recall supporters will stage a rally in the state capital today, urging voters to back their efforts to remove Governor Gray Davis from office.
After the California Supreme Court refused to consider an effort to block the election, it appears all but certain that voters will be asked on October 7 whether to give Davis the boot.
A number of candidates have materialized so far, and more are on the way.
GOP Congressman Darrell Issa, former Assemblywoman Audie Bock and failed Green Party candidate Peter Camejo say theyÂ´re in the race. Among those considering running are actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan, former Congressman Michael Huffington and businessman Bill Simon. Former vice presidential candidate Jack Kemp is also said to be considering a run.
